Who said it had to be Halloween only for dressing up? My children enjoy dressing up all year long whether around the house, to costume parties, to our local comic cons, and comic book stores! My five and 1/2 year old daughter loves playing make-believe and pretending to be all sorts of characters! Lately, after being introduced to the Lego Batman game on the Wii she’s been quite interested in the superhero world. So I knew she’d be thrilled to dress up as his female counterpart Batgirl!
The Batgirl costume from Anytimecostumes.com we received to review is of great quality! We ordered the size small which is recommended for children ages 4-6 years old and it fit! I often have trouble ordering the recommended size for my daughter because she’s such a twig (tall and skinny). Other than just age, there’s a very helpful sizing chart on the website to try be more exact.
The Batgirl costume includes: the black vinyl dress, cape, boot tops, arm gauntlet,yellow PVC bat belt, and mask. We found the costume to be of great quality! The dress part of the costumes is modest going to my daughters knee though you could even pair it with some black leggings (not included) to keep your child warmer and more comfortable when playing save the world.
My daughter stated she was quite comfortable in her costume and went one whole day without taking it off. The mask stayed on without any trouble. We found the boot toppers to easily velcro around her boots and the cape to stay firmly in place. The cuffs kinda slid up and down her arms a bit but never completely off. I would state if the gauntlets were adjustable instead of just slip on, that would have been more appealing.
If we wanted to get a bit more fancy, it’s nice to know that on the costume websites there are additional accessories such as black superhero boots, batarangs, makeup, and more for this specific costume! Overall it’s a great value ($34.99) for the quality costume and the use my daughter will get out of it. The only thing is now her three year old brother wants to dress up in a costume similar to Batman too! It looks like I’ve got some shopping to do!
